Effective water delivery is critical for a thriving landscape

Save money and water by managing irrigation systems regularly. Many times when a visual symptom of plant or turf stress is noticed, the watering schedule is just increased. This likely will not solve the problem if there are performance issues with the irrigation system. Without a properly running water delivery system and adequate schedule, your site is wasting water. Botanicon identifies issues and corrective measures to conserve water resources.

  • Establish a baseline for management with irrigation system inspection and controller mapping

  • Identify distribution issues with an irrigation audit, collecting data for informed decisions on system repairs and upgrades

  • Save money by applying for municipal rebate programs for irrigation retrofits and weather based controller upgrades

  • Save time by creating a master watering schedule based on plant type, soils, weather and type of irrigation

  • Stay updated with regular monitoring of water usage by each meter and irrigation controller
